In January and February, I built a sidewalk through the hollow south of the Beard place, on Main street. Nearly 1000 feet was gravelled on Porter street, east of the Bailey farm. Later we finished this east on Main street. Early in March we had a severe washout caused by the overflow of Roger's Brook at Brook street. This, and other washouts on different streets, required the work of several days to make right. March 18, we commenced work on the West Parish sidewalk, beginning at the parsonage and we finished it as far as Buchan's corner, with the exception of the hollow, from Williamson's to the Lawson gravel bank. This remaining portion will require a retaining wall about 5 feet high, taking 200 perch of stone. The estimated cost of stone and labor is $400. The following roads were repaired, using the road machine : From the Luscomb place to the Lawrence line. From Bar- nard's corner to Drisko's. From Moody's corner to the Vale. From Mr. Shaw's across the plains to the Weld place and to the Wilmington line. From the foot of Job Abbott's hill to Woburn street. River street to the Wilmington line. From North Andover line on Highland road to Salem street. From Highland Road past the Roach place to Nathan F. Ab- bott's corner. Last year I repaired with the machine more than one-half of the outlying districts intending to finish them this year had I the opportunity. The appropriation for repairs was cut down $1000, so the plan for this year could not be fulfilled. I think this is a mistake, for if the remain- ing portion could have been done this year, afterwards four horses could do the work of six, provided the scraping in 48 each section was done every other year. The road machine keeps the gutters clean, consequently severe storms do not cause any washouts where the road is so repaired. The gut- ters had their usual cleaning and stones were raked as often as needed. On Lowell street we gravelled from Cutler's hill past the Hunt place. From the foot of Trow's hill to the top of the hill west of Ward's. Also we gravelled the hill near Peter Smith's. The entire length of Stevens street. From the West church to Cunningham's. The entire length of Brook street. On School street we began near Mr. Leach's, grav- elling what was not macadamized south to the depot. On High street we repaired from Elm street nearly to Mr. Bliss's. We began near the fountain at James Abbott's, gravelling as far as the guide boards. In Ballardvale we gravelled a third of a mile north of Dris- ko's. From Moody's corner to Palmer's. On River street, Tewksbury street, Chester street and on the plains. This was done by the pair of horses kept at the vale and the town receives considerable praise for the neat and faithful work of their driver, Mr. Haggerty. A catch basin was put in near John Dearborn's and over 200 feet of 10 inch pipe was laid underground leading into Clarke's brook. This was a long needed want. A strip of macadam road, 701 feet long was built on Lowell street near the West Cemetery. In Frye Village, near the house of George Ward, 748 feet was laid toward the east. 1 built 1046 feet down Essex street from the electric car track at the square toward the west. On Main street we began at the terminus of the State Highway lay out, building 1300 feet toward town. In Abbott Village, 230 feet was built opposite the house of Mr. Craig on Miner- al st:eet. The money was spent, so this last was left unfin- ished. A catch basin and 50 feet of pipe will complete the job. In all, this makes a little over 4000 feet of macadam road built this year. I repaired Park street from the engine house past Bartlet 49 street, making it as good as new. The culvert there was taken up and cleaned out. It was built of stone 2 1-2 feet square. The south end joins the land purchased by Mr. Howell and he laid 192 feet of 8 inch pipe entering it into Roger's Brook. This failed to carry off the water so in or- der to make it right I have taken the 8 inch pipe out and put in 12 inch at the cost of $85. This same condition of drain- age is found in other parts cf town : on Main street near Mr. George Foster's and near Dr. Leitch's. Here, from an 18 inch culvert a small pipe was laid entering the brook that runs under School street near Mrs. Blunt's. This has caused quite a lot of trouble to neighboring cellars, and always will until a larger pipe is laid to take the overflow. Now it seems to me that when a man covers over a natural waterway, he ought to be compelled to put in a pipe of ample dimensions to carry all the flow of water. A 12 inch culvert was put in across Lowell street, west of Buchan's road. I repaired the driveway of Mrs. Chase at Haggett's Pond, she bearing the expense. Some old junk has been sold and the dealer settled with the town treasurer. We have laid concrere sidewalks as follows: 459 yards on south side of Central street, from Campion's corner across Chestnut street, connecting it with the concrete at Tyer's corner ; 370 yards on the north side of Central street ; 341 yards on Locke street ; 334 yards on Chestnut street ; 66 2-3 yards on Morton street ; 269 yards on west side of School street; a crossing from the Tyer residence to the Episcopal church. Gutters were concreted near Judge Bell's on Bart- let street, 40 yards ; 236 yards on Phillips street ; 56 yards on Main street at the foot of Harding street. Repairs were made on the old concrete walks and gutters where needed. The concrete sidewalks were built under the betterment act which necessitates being laid out by the selectmen. On Main street I built a concrete walk from the brick walk near Wakefield's to Yalpey's corner, 49 yards. The new street 50 laid out by the selectmen from Walnut avenue to Carmel Woods, 50 feet wide, has been completed with a sidewalk on each side. A 12 inch pipe was put in underground through the hollow. The full amount has been expended and the road finished with the exception of a pebble near the Grout residence. It is estimated that it will cost 1125 to remove this. I think it will be cheaper to put an electric light on top of it and let it remain there. At Haggett's Pond, 720 feet of railing was built and paint- ed between Dixon's corner and the depot. New rails were placed on Mineral street, south of the gravel pit. A guard picket fence has been put on both sides of the river bridge at Frye Village. In Ballarclvale, 100 feet of railing was built on Chester street and 752 feet on the swamp road near Lowell Junction. These ought to be painted this spring. All old rails received a new coat of paint. Roger's Brook has been cleaned out. In one place we got nearly a load of grape baskets. The steam roller has been used on all the macadam road built during the past few years on the River Road and at Haggett's Pond, and it resurfaced them nicely. We received $40 from the State Highway Commission, $80 from Lawrence Gas Co., $285 from Loring Farnum, $5 from Michael Stack for use of roller. In build- ing a piece of macadam under the old system, we never could get enough stone dust to surface the road. With the aid of the steam roller we have a surplus left at the springs. Of this I have sold 25 tons to Loring Farnum for $30 ; to Prof. Smith loads amounting to $9; $9 worth to Prof. Taylor; to Peter D. Smith and Henry Barnard, each $3. We also did work amounting to $75 for the Smith & Dove Co., which we should not have done if we had not owned the steam roller. This makes the earnings of the roller outside our own town work over $500. I stated at town meeting that the roller was the best plow team on the top of the earth. I am of the same opinion today, for we plowed 1300 feet of road and it never balked once. 51 Ever since the frost came out of the ground in the spring, the Lawrence Gas Co., has had from 60 to 107 men at work digging up the streets to put in gas pipes. The New Eng- land Telegraph and Telephone Co., have left a ridge from Tewksbury to the Lawrence line. With these difficulties to contend with it has been rather hard to keep the water where it belongs and it will be some time before the ridges settle back into place. I have been asked why the town teams were not kept at work later in the season. The money was all spent, the town treasurer refused to pay any more bills and the town counsel advised me to stop short. Then again, there was $1000 less on repairs and $1000 less on macadam than in either of the two previous years. We did not receive any appropriation from the State Highway Commission. This was $5000 in each of the two previous years. I think this explanation ought to be satisfactory.

The house is in good condition. As you will see on Page fourteen of the inmates are over sixty years of age, which necessitates on the part of Mrs. Burnham a great deal of care and attention. Some of these old. people are bed-ridden and almost entirely helpless. These unfortunate ones look on Mrs. Burnham as their best friend. The house every year receives a visit from the State Inspectors, and in the printed report of the State Board of Charities the Andover Almshouse stands second to none in the condition of the house and the care of the patients. The expense is only $1.69 per week for each inmate and the in- mates are well clothed and fed, and with Mr. Burnham's good management the receipts from the farm are $3016.32. We invite the people of the town, both men and women, to visit the Almshouse and note its condition and the pro- vision made for the care and comfort of the inmates.

The regular work has been performed in the matter of keeping the grounds in proper condition and new lots have been plotted for burial purposes. As many of the lots are not provided with deposits, the in- come therefrom to be used for the perpetual care of said lots, and as the appropriation made by the town should not be ap- plied to private lots, your committee would suggest that own- ers of lots avail themselves of the statute provision in regard to deposits of funds for the care of cemetery lots. This seems advisable, as families move from town and the burial places of friends and relatives are neglected. Sunken ground, growing weeds and fallen headstones are unpleasant sights in a cemetery and there are several notable examples of this neglect in the Spring Grove Cemetery. Your committee de- sires to concrete gutters and waterways in the cemetery and contemplates the building of a stone bridge over Central Av- enue, connecting the east with the west plotted ground. As there is much work to be done in the cemetery in the matter of new walks, etc., your committee would ask for the usual appropriation of $300, and the proceeds of sale of lots for the care of the cemetery for the coming year.

AUDITORS' CERTIFICATE We have examined the accounts of the several Town Officers and find them correctly cast, with vouchers for all payments, except that eight receipts were missing or had not been returned up to the time of our examination. As these bills were all recorded on the books of the Auditors, Select- men and Treasurer, the correctness of the accounts is not in the least affected. The Town Treasurer has on deposit in the Andover National Bank and cash on hand $1,397.90. Also $40.00 to the credit of the Water Loan and $8,784.12 to the credit of the Sewer Loan. GEORGE A.

STARK ) Andover MEMORIAL HALL THIRTIETH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES The statistical report of the Librarian may be found on another page, and that of the Superintendent of the Cornell Art Collection is given below : — Number of visitors : adults, 1096 ; children, 2484 ; total, 3580 ; average daily attendance, 35. The collec- tion of stereoscopic views has been increased by the gift of fifty pictures from Miss Agnes Park. These views, aside from being used in the Art Room, have been loaned, in limited numbers, to teachers in the higher grades of the public schools and in the Punchard School, for use in their classes. JULIA E. TWICHBLL. Little need be added to these reports to indicate the con- stant and beneficent usefulness of the Memorial Hall Library in its different departments — circulation of books, reading room, reference room, art room. No one feature has been more satisfactory than the enthusiastic interest taken by children and youth in the examination of the stereoscopic views, both in the Art Room, and as shown them in their class-rooms. One item in the Superintendent's report above may suggest to citizens to add to the stereoscopic collection such domestic or foreign views as they have no further use for in their homes. 122 It is also suggested that published discourses, together with printed matter or written records of any kind, bearing on the earlier or later history of the town, might properly be sent to the Library for careful preservation. All such ma- terial will be invaluable in years to come.- The attention of patrons of the Library is called to the op- portunity of quiet examination of works of reference, in vari- ous departments, in the Cornell Reference Room. To these are now added the monthly Cumulative Book Index, and Poole's Index to Periodical Literature, the several annual volumes of which have been consolidated into one. The number of books purchased during the past two years has fallen below the usual average on account of the neces- sity of using a part of the fund in printing the new cata- logue. The funds available for the purchase of books are at best insufficient to secure many works which the Trustees would gladly add to the list. It will be remembered, too, that a considerable sum is spent every year in replacing the books worn out by circulation. Respectfully submitted : JOSEPH W. SMITH, FRANCIS H. JOHNSON, E.

PUNCHARD FREE SCHOOL Report of Special Town Committee To the Citizens of the Town of Andover: At the last annual town meeting it was voted that a com- mittee of five be chosen to consider the high school question in Andover, said Committee to consult with the Trustees of the Punchard Free School regarding the same and make a report and recommendations at the next annual meeting and that this committee be authorized to expend, not more than two hundred dollars, for legal advice in the matter. It was also voted that the following persons serve as that committee: John L. Brewster, T. Frank Pratt, George Ripley, George T. Eaton, Colver J. Stone. In accordance with the above vote your committee met and organized March 21st, 1901. The reasons for the ap- pointment of your committee and the questions upon which they were to report and make recommendations, are dis- cussed and fully set forth in the opinion of Judge Ward well and in the report of the sub-committee, which report and opinion are herewith presented in full and made a part of this report. Your committee held several meetings at which they very carefully examined and discussed the different plans under which numerous schools were working, whose relations with the Town in which they were located were at all similar to those existing between the Punchard Free School and the Town of Andover. In the opinion of your Committee no one of these plans was feasible ; hence more than to allude to them in this report would be neither wise nor profitable. 133 At a joint meeting of the Punchard Trustees and your committee ot five a sub-committee was appointed to take legal advice in their consideration of the relations between the Punchard Free School and the Town of Andover. The committee consulted Judge Henry Wardwell of Salem and submitted a report to the joint committee containing a plan based upon the opinion received from Judge Wardwell. This report was accepted by the joint Committee. Your committee submit Judge Wardwell's findings and the report of the sub-committee to the voters of the Town with confidence that the plan suggested therein with such modification of details as may be deemed wise by the Town School Committee and the trustees of the Punchard Fund will furnish to the Town all the educational facilities of a permanent and well equipped High School. The following is the opinion of Judge Henry Wardwell of Salem : To Mr. John L. Brewster ', Chairman of Committee of Town of Andover : You ask my opinion as to the powers of the Town and the Trustees of the Punchard Free School in reference to making arrangements for the maintenance of a high school. The power of the Town to appropriate money for such a school is limited by the Provisions of the 18th Article of amendment in the Constitution which requires that " all moneys raised by taxation in the Towns and Cities for the support of Public Schools shall be applied to and expended in no other school than those which are conducted according to law under the order and superintendence of the authori- ties of the Town or City in which the money is to be ex- pended." The will of Benjamin H. Punchard proved in 1850 gave fifty thousand dollars (150,000) to the Town of Andover " for the purpose of founding a free school." This bequest is in the 6th clause of the will which is as follows: — "The 134 residue of my property, not exceeding fifty thousand dollars I give and bequeath to the Town ofAndover for the pur- pose of founding a free school, forty thousand dollars for a permanent fund for the support of said school and ten thousand dollars for the necessary buildings, etc. providing that at my decease, if there should not be the said amount of fifty thousand dollars after paying the amounts first devised, then the said balance to be kept at interest till the amount is fifty thousand dollars. Said school shall be under the direction of eight trustees of whom the rector of Christ's church to be one, also the Ministers of the South Parish and West Parish, Congregational societies to be members also, the remaining five to be chosen by the inhabi- tants of Andover in Town Meeting to serve for three years, two of whom to be taken from Christ Church Parish, two from the South Parish Society and one from the West Parish Society : said school to be free for all youths resident in Andover under the restrictions of the trustees as to age and qualifications : no sectarian influence to be used in the school : the Bible to be in daily use and the Lord's prayer in which the pupils shall join audibly with the teacher in the morning at the opening : the said trustees to have the sole direction and power also to determine and decide whether the school shall be for males only or for the benefit of both sexes : said school to be located in the South Parish of Andover but free for all the Parishes equally." Under other provisions of the will other moneys have come to the Town for the same pur- pose so that the trust fund is now about seventy-five thou- sand dollars. The eight trustees, three designated in the will and five chosen by the Town were by Chapter 7 of the Acts of 1851 made a corporation under the name of the Trustees of the Punchard Free School. By this Act " the possession, control and management of the fund be- queathed to the Town of Andover by said will in the cor- porate name of said Trustees for the purposes and uses therein expressed is hereby confirmed to said trustees and 135 their successors forever " and the corporation is to " exer- cise all the powers and perform all the duties " given to and imposed upon the trustees by the will. The provisions of the Punchard Will and the question of the authority of the Town in this matter came before the Supreme Judicial Court in 1869 in the case of Jenkins vs. Andover, 103 Mass., 94. It was in this case decided that this School is designed to stand for the Town of Andover as a part of the system of common school education ; that money raised by taxation for its support would be money raised for the support of public schools, that the school is not under the control of the Town authorities, that money raised by taxation for the sup- port of common schools cannot be applied to the support of this school and that the "Statute of 1869, Chapter 396 is un- constitutional and invalid so far as it purports to authorize the Town of Andover to raise by taxation and appropriate money to aid the trustees of the Punchard Free School to build a school house to be used and occupied in place of a high school for said Town and to aid in defraying the annual expenses of said school." Any arrangement between the town and the trustees cannot therefore include the appropri- ation to the support of the Punchard Free School of any money raised by taxation. The terms of the 6th clause of the Punchard Will as to the character and management of the school are broad and general and deal very little with matters of detail. The limitations that the law will place upon the powers of the trustees are more elastic than those affecting the town. The income of the trust fund is not now sufficient to alone support such a school as has hereto- fore been maintained or such as the town needs and desires. A school must, however, be maintained by the trustees "free for all youths resident in Andover" and such as is required by the not very numerous provisions of the will. The terms of the trust must be substantially complied with and the purpose of the will essentially carried out. Keeping within these general requirements the trustees 136 would have a great deal of latitude as to details. By Chap- ter 77 of the Acts of 1856 the Town is relieved from th necessity of maintaining a high school but the same act re- serves to the town the right to establish one if it shall vote to do so. The Town cannot appropriate money to aid in supporting a school managed by the Trustees and the Trustees have not the right to turn their income over to the Town or its school committee to be expended for the sup- port of a school managed by the Town authorities. A solution of the difficulty would be found if the Town should establish a High school and the Trustees coutinue to main- tain a school, the branches to be taught being apportioned between the two schools so that they may together furnish all desirable instruction. Such a course Isfeasible ande justifiable both from the standpoint of the Town and that of the Trustees. The fact that a majority of,<the trustees are elected by the Town makes it Improbable that there would be any difficulty in carrying out such an arrangement. There is no reason why 1 1 1 * - same persons might not be elected trustees and members of the school committee, win- Hie same persons might not be teachers in the two schools or the two schools occupy the same building. The same person could and naturally and for mutual convenience would be chosen head master by the ScIiomI Committee, and employed by the Punchard Trustees as their head master. The two schools would go on together and virtually consti- tute one school. The provisions of Public Statutes, Chapter 14. Section 2, as to subjects required to be taught in high schools and those which may be taught but are not compulsory would make it easy to apportion the branches of study and teachers between the two schools. Salaries of teachers employed in both schools could be adjusted with consideration of the fact of such joint employment. Relieving the Town from the ex- pense of instruction in certain branches would be a fair com- pensation for the use by the trustees' school of the school- 137 house owned by the Town and justify the Town in permitting such use. The provisions Jof the will and those of Public Statutes, Chapter 44, Section 32, as to the use of the Bible are not materially different. Henry Wardwell. Dec. 27, 1901. Report of the Sub-Committee The sub-committee appointed to take legal advice in their consideration of the relations between the Punchard Free School and the Town of Andover beg leave to report that they have consulted Judge Henry Wardwell of Salem and have received from him an opinion herewith presented in full. This opinion advises the maintenance of two schools, one to be established, maintained and directed by the Town of And- over and the other maintained and directed by the trustees of the Punchard will ; that the two aim, not to compete with, but to supplement each other so that the result will be to fur- nish to the town the educational facilities of a well equipped high school ; and that the sources of instruction and the ap- pointment of teachers be arranged by mutual agreement. The opinion also suggests that the salary of one or more of the teachers in such schools be paid in part by the trustees and in part by the Town. Your committee are pleased to find that the course which they recommended before taking legal advice is thus con- firmed by the opinion of Judge Wardwell. They therefore make the following recommendations : That a high school, to be called the Punchard High School, be established and maintained by the Town of Andover un- der the direction of its school committee. That the course of instruction in this school be so ar- ranged as to embrace the major part of the studies necessary 138 for pupils proposing to pursue their education in more ad- vanced institutions of learning and to embrace the literary study regarded as necessary for those desiring a high school course only. That the trustees of the Punchard will as heretofore main- tain and direct the Punchard Free*School. That its course of instruction be so arranged as^to embrace the mathematical and scientific study requisite for higher institutions and in addition such courses in manual training and in preparation for business as may be necessary in a well equipped high school. That each school accept the certificate of the other in case of studies which it does not itself teach and that such certifi- cates shall be countedHowards a diploma as if given by the school granting the diploma. And that the number of cour- ses and the marks in eacli course requisite for a diploma be the same in both. That the two schools at the beginning may well employ seven teachers ; of whom three assistant teachers or their equivalent may be emploved by the Town School Com- mittee and three by the trustees. That in case the two par- ties, the school committee and the trustees, agree upon the same person as head master his salary shall be paid in equal proportions bj each, but in case of failure to agree each party shall be at liberty to withdraw from this arrangement and conduct its school independently of the other, and either party may withdraw at any time by giving notice to the other on or before the first day of February in any year but the separation shall take place only at the end of a school year. That the plan here proposed be carried into operation at the beginning of the school year next September ; and that the Town be requested to appropriate sufficient money to carry this plan into operation. That in accordance with the recommendation of Judge Ward well the suggestion be made to the Town that one or more of the Trustees might well be 139 elected to the School Committee. These recommendations your committee present. And further in order to exhibit the line of division which they deem desirable they suggest the following list of studies for each school. PUNCHARD HIGH SCHOOL Latin, Greek, English (Literature and Composition), French, German, History (of the United States, Greek, Ro- man, General), History and Theory of Government, Draw- ing (Free hand and Mechanical), Music. PUNCHARD FREE SCHOOL Algebra, Geometry, Book-keeping, Botany, Chemistry, Physics, Manual Training, Cooking, Sewing, Stenography, Type-writing, Business Arithmetic, Business Law. Your committee present this sketch of two schools work- ing each on an independent basis but with a common aim, not imagining that it is complete in its details, recognizing that manv modifications will be lound necessary when in op- eration, but believing that it affords a ground for a legal and satisfactory agreement between the Trustees of the Punchard will and the Town of Andover.

W 93 TOWN OF ANDOVER SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD of PUBLIC WORKS EMBRACING THE THIRTEENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS AND FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF SEWER M COMMISSIONERS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JANUARY 1$, 1902. Andover, Mass. THE ANDOVER PRESS 1902 BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS JOHN H. FLINT, Chairman, FELIX G. HAYNES, Secretary, LEWIS T. HARDY, JOWN W. BELL, JOHN L. SMITH, SUPERINTENDENT JOHN E. SMITH. Term expires 1902 Term expires 1902 Term expires 1904 Term expires 1904 Term expires 1903 REPORT OF BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS To the Citizens of the Town of Andover : Your Board of Public Works herewith submits its third an- nual report embracing the thirteenth annual report of Water Commissioners and fifth annual report of Sewer Commis- sioners for the year ending Jan. 15, 1902. 42 buildings were connected with the sewer this year, making a total to date of 321. Cost of sewer maintenance, $828 79 Cost of sewers to plate, $122,245.94 Sewer bonds outstanding, $125,000 00 Amount of sinking fund, $40,458 66 With the exception of a short line of pipe laid on Porter street, no new work has been done, yet with the regular du- ties of this Board and the frequent calls for engineering work aside from this has kept the superintendent and his small force of men busy through the year. The whole system and its workings have thus far been entirely satisfactory, but all systems require more or less watchfulness and care to keep them in good running order. The filter beds are all right and have given no particular trouble, and they are in some respects in better shape than ever. Early last spring the waterpipe under Roger's brook was found to be broken (caused by the settling of the culvert) and in making preparations for its removal the whole cul- vert was found in such a dilapidated shape that it was ap- parent that something should be done to put it in fair con- dition. In consultation with the authorities most interested, it was deemed advisable to rebuild the whole culvert at the time, rather than make temporary repairs with the prospect in view of soon being obliged to do it. With the approval of the Board of Selectmen and Superintendent of Streets, the work was commenced by this board. In order to relieve the overflow at certain times of the year, the water course was widened to six feet and the foun- dations and walls lowered about four and one-half feet, so that when the time comes to lower the bed of the brook, it can be done without interfering with this culvert. The sewer and water pipes were lowered to correspond. The fre- quent and heavy rains which occurred at this time impeded the work and added materially to the cost which thus far has been borne by this department. It was found that the pump in the pump house near Shaw- shin River would freeze in winter and that it would be nec- esssary to keep a fire to prevent it, so the house was removed, the pump put under ground, similar to the one on Phillips street, thus saving the cost of fuel to heat and the services of a man to look after it. WATER SYSTEM. Received from water rates, $8941.83 Net cost of maintenance, 7955.34 Number of applications for water this year 21 Number of service pipes put in, 21 Number of service pipes now in use, 896 Water bonds outstanding, $140,000.00 Cost of system to date, $209,586.39 Amount of sinking fund, 10,422.48 Owing to the adoption of new water rates, which took ef- fect Jan. 1st of this year, the receipts are less than the year previous, but next year they will come up to the former amount. Formerly this sum included advance payments which the new rates do not require. In future all bills will be rendered quarterly for water actually used, and this change we think will be more satisfactory to all concerned. A new boiler was purchased and placed in position in the early summer, the cost including setting was about $ 1800. At the last annual meeting your Board was authorized to apply to the legislature for permission to issue more water bonds. Application was made soon after and the request granted, but it being quite late in the season when notice was received, so late that the work contemplated could not have been finished before cold weather, it was not thought advis- able to call an extra town meeting to authorize their issue, this matter will however be submitted to the town at the an- nual meeting, and if authority is given, part of the bonds will be issued and sold and the proceeds used to make some short extensions, but more particularly to carry out the prop- osition referred to in our last report, in regard to relieving the pump in some manner at the time of year when a large amount of water is being used. The great friction encountered through the long line of pipe through which the water is pumped to the reservoir makes a great difference in the amount of water discharged there through the day. The pump is already doing about all that the safety of the present line will admit. To obviate the necessity of running the pump at night which would require additional help, it is proposed to tap the force main near the station or at Barnard's corner and run an 8 inch or 10 inch pipe to Ballardvale, this would not only relieve the pump, which under these circumstances could be made to do more work bat would give an additional line to the reservoir which could be utilized in case of accident to the main lino to still keep a supply in the reservoir sufficient for all purposes This line will cost from $15,000 to $17,000, according to the size of pipe used and which route is taken. The bad taste in the water late in the summer, subjected your board to considerable annoyance and extra expense in trying to remedy it. The water was drawn from the reser- 6 voir and the basin cleaned, the main pipes flushed and a diver was employed to examine the crib and suction pipe, (both of which were found in good condition). A filter was built across the brook in Bailey's meadow and numerous other things done which were thought at the time might be of some benefit ; fortunately this condition of things did not last long and we have been assured by the State Board that although the taste was disagreeable, there was nothing in the water that was deleterious in the least degree. This trouble cost at least five hundred dollars and as the appropriation for maintenance was reduced last spring a like amount, it was found that our funds were exhausted and that we should need one thousand dollars more to pay help and incidental expenses for the remainder of the year. The town was asked at a special meeting held in Septem- ber, to authorize the Treasurer to transfer one thousand dol- lars from the receipts of water rates to the waterworks main- tenance account, and it was so voted. The maintenance account includes all bills and ordinary expenses incurred for work done in this department except- ing construction. All office and incidental expenses which embraces this year about two months' service of the Superintendent and his helper, while engaged in outside work as engineers in con- nection with the electric R. R., on Main street and various other places. JOHN H. FLINT ^ JOHN L. SMITH | Board of LEWIS T. HARDY }■ JOHN W. BELL | Public Works FELIX G. HAYNES J SINKING FUNDS.

A filter basin has been built on one of the brooks flowing into Haggett's pond. An oil sep- arating device has been constructed on the outboard delivery pipe from the vacuum pumps. Boiler No. 1 has been re- placed by a 66 inch horizontal tubular boiler. A brick cul- vert 6 by 7 feet was built at Roger's Brook on Chestnut street and the water pipe, sewer and underdrain lowered at that point. The sewer pump house on Main street has been torn down and an underground house built. Owing to alteration of Main street caused by the laying of double tracks, four ser- vice pipes, three hydrants and seven sewer manholes were changed. A larger amount of engineering has been done for other departments during the past year than ever before. Respectfully submitted, JOHN E. SMITH.
